Tyler Dooley, Meghan Markle's nephew revealed his plans to expand his cannabis business after gaining fame through a strain he developed in honor of the duchess. His expansion will include a new hybrid with baby Archie's name.
Meghan Markle’s rise to royalty prompted her cannabis-growing nephew, Tyler Dooley to develop a marijuana strain in honor of her name. The product, "Markle Sparkle" proved to be a success and made him an overnight millionaire.

With the birth of Meghan’s son, Archie, Tyler is once again banking on the name. It was revealed in the Daily Mail that the 27-year-old is expanding his business to include a new hybrid of cannabis he intends to call “Archie Sparkie.”
Tyler, who is the son of Meghan’s half-brother, Thomas Markle is proud of the fact that despite being known as the black sheep of the family, he’s become a successful businessman.
According to the publication, Tyler’s Blue Line Hemp company which operates his business that currently has 1,500 marijuana plants will be expanding its Oregon ranch from 1,000 to 2,600 acres. Along with the strain with Archie's name, he also intends to build a castle made of hemp bricks in honor of the little boy’s name.
The expansion is thanks to his aunt’s name. Tyler admitted, “Markle Sparkle made headlines and made me a lot of money.” He refused to divulge how much he has made so far but he foresees earning up to $200 million a year with his new plans.
Tyler, who is the son of Meghan’s half-brother, Thomas Markle is proud of the fact that despite being known as the black sheep of the family, he’s become a successful businessman. He also said that compared to Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, he’s doing more for the environment.
“The farm is organic and sustainable. It's ironic my aunt and Prince Harry go on about being such great eco-warriors and yet they carry on jetting around on private planes. I think we're doing more for the planet than my aunt Meghan is,” he claimed.
Speaking to The Sun, Tyler proudly shared that his products are focused on cannabidiol (CBD) which is, in his own words, “absolutely booming.”
“It’s the hottest commodity in the world” he adds while revealing he’s developing a superior line of CBD.
“CBD potency is way higher than anywhere else here, we can grow it better than anywhere in the world, Oregon just has the perfect climate. I’m not focusing on the weed, but CBD.”
Tyler and the rest of his family are estranged from Meghan. In fact, they were not invited to her royal wedding. He made headlines last year when he was caught entering a nightclub in London with a knife. He traveled to the UK to watch the wedding on television.
“People have labeled Meghan’s American family as hillbillies and a freak show,” Tyler admitted. But he isn’t focused on that. He believes he has proven himself with the success of his business.
“I’m building a business the old-fashioned way with hard work and lots of sweat,” he proudly shares.
